Thread: Replacement for Shaw Services?

  1. #1

    Default Replacement for Shaw Services?

    With the ever increasing prices that Shaw is charging for Internet, phone and cable, what other options are available locally? They seem to increase every 6 months and I originally left Bell for the same reason. It appears that Shaw is no better.

    TekSavvy and Vianet are alternatives to Shaw and Bell.

    http://teksavvy.com and http://www.vianet.ca

    I can't say much about either for service quality, it's been a while since I was a Vianet customer. When I was a Vianet customer, they were purchasing their bandwidth from Shaw.


    Neither has television services available.

    The internet is great in that you can download/buy pretty much any show you normally watch on TV. I ditched cable a few years ago for Netflix and I just download the couple shows I can't miss. It took some time to get into the routine but I found the quality of programming was going down while the price kept going up. I'd never go back

    He asked for other options other than Shaw and Bell, those are the only other options for Sault Ste. Marie.
